uals on the saint charge, as the re
suit of the seizure at Hoboken last

freighter, East Side, in the roal bunk
ers of which were found 459 machine

been destined for use by the Sinn
Fein in Ireland.
. Others Indicted.
The other individuals indicted are:
Frank Williams, alias Lawrence de
' Lacy, alias Lawrence Pierce, who is
alleged to have paid for the shipment
of guns, and his brother, Fred Wil
liams, alias Edward de Lacy, who is
alleged to have been implicated In

Thompson. The latter is a son-in-law

can ambassador to Great Britain.
There was considerable mystery
about the guns after their seizure and
an investigation was started by the
United States shipping board and the
Department of Justice. Frank Wil
liams claimed ownership of the guns
after seizure. He declared he had
purchased a number of guns through
the Auto-Ordnance company and
stored them in a warehouse. He said
they had been stolen from the ware
house and asserted fie did not know
how they got on the ship.
Rorke later was arrested and was
said to have admitted that he sold
the guns to a group of strange men.
The indictments were returned by
the January federal grand jury,
vhich concluded its work in April.
Information concerning the indict
jncnts was withheld, it was indicat
ed, because of the inability to reach
come of those indicted.
The technical indictment against
the men as a body charged them
with "conspiracy to set on foot and

Administration Forces Win
First Battle to Complete
Tariff Before Soldier
By GRAFTON S. WILCOX
Omaha lirr Lrafil Wlrr.
Washington, June 19. Although
administration forces won in the re
publican caucus today, they are faced
with a much harder tight in the sen
ate to keep the soldiers' bonus side
tracked until the tariff is passed.
Immediately upon learning of the
republican caucus decision, further
to postpone the bonus, democratic
leaders snt out telegraiys to all
absentees urging them to return to
Washington tomorrow for a "show
down" on the issue. One of the
sharpest parliamentary combats of
the present session is in prospect, but
indications are that the administra
tion will win by a narrow margin.
Calling attention to repeated prom
ises of republican leaders to pass the
bonus and the never-ending delays
and postponements, Senator Walsh,
Massachusetts, democrat, declared
the time had come to stop "bunking"
the ex-service men. He said he was
ready to make a motion to take -up
the bonus tomorrow, but it was gen
erally understood that Senator La
Follette, Wisconsin, would offer the
motion.' Democratic senators said
they preferred to have the motion
come from the republican side.
Approximately 27 of the 36 demo
cratic senators favor the bonus, and,
it is believed, they will welcome the
opportunity to support the motion to
take it up. Bonus advocates are also
counting on , the aid of perhaps 12
or 15 republican insurgents. They
are pinning their hopes of success on
the chance that some senators, run
ning for re-election, who are secret
ly opposed to the bonus, will hesi
tate to go on record .publicly in
favor of continued postponement.
McCumber Urges Action.
When the caucus met today Sena
tor McCumber, North Dakota, chair
man of the finance committee, made
good his promise to do everything in
his power to give the bonus the
right of way over the tariff. He
offered a motion to take up the
bonus immediately. The motion was j
rejected by a vote of 30 to 9. The
senators who voted in favor of the !
motion were Lenroot. Wisconsin;
McCumber, North Dakota; Capper,
Kansas; Jones, Washington; Town-
send, Michigan; Nicholsoji. Colora
do; Sutherland, West Virginia, and
Norbeck, South Dakota.
Following the defeat of the mo
tion. Senator Curtis, Kansas, re
publican -whip, proposed that the
conference adopt a simple resolution
declaring its purpose to take up the
bonus after the tariff was passed.
Senator McCumber insisted that the
declaration be more specific. Where
upon a compromise resolution was
drafted and adopted by a vote of
27 to 11. It asserted that there was
absolutely no foundation for reports
that tne bonus would be abandoned.
Senators Edge, New Jersey; Dil
lingham, Vermont; Ernst, Kentucky;
Phipps. Colorado; Nelson, Minne
sota; Fernald, Maine: Caldcr, New
York; Newberry, Michigan; War
ren, Wyoming; Wadsworth, New
York, and Brandegee; Connecticut,
voted against the resolution.

Rail B o a r d
Chairman Hooper Writing
Answer to Union Ultima
tum Giving Phases of
Stress Strike Damage
By ARTHUR M. EVANS.
Omaha B lnwd W'jr.
Chicago. June 19. Acceptance of
the $135,000,000 wage cuts July 1
will be urged upon railroad workers
by the United States railroad labor
board in a reply to Sunday's "ulti
matum' from the union chiefs at
Cincinnati to the effect that if the
workers vote for a strike the leaders
will sanction it The answer of the
board, which is being prepared by
Chairman Ben W. Hooper, will go
into phases of the readjustment
period, such as rail wages ami their
relation to transportation costs and
to industry aud production in gen
eral. Gossip on the outside is that
it may find its text in a paragraph
from the wage reduction order
dealing with the business revival
now in progress and the manner in
which transportation dovetails into
it all. It reads:
"That the carriers shall have a
fair opportunity to profit by the re
vival of business in order that they
may expand their facilities is abso
lutely indispensable to their efficient
service to the American public. This
must not be construed to mean that
the employes should be called upon
to bear the cost of railway rehabili
tation, improved service and re
duced rates. It means every citi
zen, including railway employes,
should bear and forbear until the
carriers are back on their feet.
Stress Strike Losses.
The argument will be stressed
that a strike would not only result
in losses to the rail workers and to
the carriers, but would likewise re
tard business recovery. Incidentally,
sftme members pointed out today, it
also would defer the "scientific ad
justment of the living and saving
wafce," to which the board in its
decision said it could devote greater
consideration when the "abnormali
ties" of the present time are over.
Majority members of the board
emphasized today a point that was
buried in the extended reply to the
dissenting opinion of the labor mem
bers. This was that the "other rele
vant circumstances" weighed by the
board, in addition to the seven wage
factors specified in the transporta
tion act, were set forth in the de-,
cision in 1920 which increased wages
22 per cent. This decision was signed
by all the board. The phrase "other
relevant circumstances," by the way
covers the relation of rail wages to
industry and production in general.
The argument is that the labor mem
bers were for applying itwhen wages
were going up, but are attacking it
when wages are coming dov,;:.
Change in Stand.
"The records show." said the ma
jority, "that the dissenting members i
voted for the adoption ot the 1920
decision containing the language in i
regard to 'relevant circumstances'

Hatred of Other Nations
Condemned by Hughes
Ann Arbor, Mich., June 19 A
plea for a "new sense of civic re
sponsibility in matters of interna
tional concern" in the L'nited States,
as the most certain basis of promot
ing peace in the world, was made
here today by Secretary Hughes at
the commencement exercises of the
University of Michigan. "Sound
public opinion" was most necessary
to support the nation's peaceful dip
lomatic aims, he said.
"It must frown upon the constant
efforts to create suspicion, distrust
and hatred," he continued. "There
can be no assurance of peace and
few of the necessary and just settle
ments which make for peace, in a
world of hate.
"It should be recognized that
what is more necessary than formu
las is a new sense of civic responsi
bility in matters of international
concern. The chief enemies of
peace are those who constantly in
dulge in the abusive of the foreign
peoples and their governments, who
asperse their motives and visit them

Ford Offer Killed
bv Norris Attack,
Manufacturer s Proposal for
Muscle Shoals Given Body
By GEORGE F. AUTHIER.
(Washington Corrmpondent Omaha Bet.
Washington, June 19. (Special
Telegram.) The Ford offer to take
over the Muscle Shoals is regarded
as having been killed as a result of
ihe speech made in the senate Sat
urday by Senator Norris of Nebras
ka, in which he riddled the proposi
tion. There is no chance of its be
ing taken up this session and, follow
ing Senator Norris' attack upon Mr.
Ford's offer, it is regarded as ex
tremely unlikely that either house or
senate will consider it favorably.
Senator Norris, from now on, will
devote himself to the task"" of work
ing out a permanent policy for the
disposition of the $100,000,000 proj
ect. His bill, providing for a gov
ernment corporation to develop and
complete the project, represents hjs
own idea of what should be done
with it. This plan of government
ownership, however, is bound to
meet with vigorous opposition, es
pecially from administration sources.
Senator Norris' position, taken in
opposition to the farm organizations
which have been supporting the Ford
offer, has proven a sensation in cir
cles generally regarded as agricul
tural. Senator Norris statement that
the organizations which were boost
ing the Ford offer did not know
what they were talking about has
left their representatives gasping.
Supporters of the Ford project
were organizing their forces this
morning, and members were general
ly of the opinion that Senator Nor- j
rii' anah'si; of the Ford offer will j
make it extremely difficult to regain i
the momentum that has been lost.

in Sinking Condition
Key West, Fla., June 19. Rescue
oi survivors of the crew of the
steamer Bella was reported by the
coast -guard cutter Tamaroa in a'
wireless message received here last
night at the same time that the Nor
wegian steamer Bergestad reported
the rescue of the crew of the tanker
De Soto. Both ships were said to
have been abandoned in a sinking
condition, but the widely different
localities reported appeared to dis
prove first indications that they had
been in collision, and the cause of the
disasters was unknown.,
The De Soto, which is listed in the
marine registry as a tanker of 3,600
tons, was reported to have been
abandoned in latitude 22.45, longitude
92.28. and the Bella, listed as a
freighter of 781 tons, in latitude 26.4
and longitude 74.40. The Tamaroa,
which was enroute from Norfolk to
the canal zone, reported that it was

Harding to Call Coal
Urge Prompt Action
Washington. June 19. i'rtsidcnt
L I larding wa akcd today to take
step to end the coal strike in a joint
appeal presented 'o him by the com
mission on the church and social
service oi the Federal Council of
Churches, with which are alliliated 30
great Protestant communions, the
department of social action of the
National Catholic Welfare council
and the social justice commission of
the Central Conference of American
Rabbis. This is the first time, as
far as is known, that these repre
sentative organizations of Protes
tants, Roman Catholics and Jews
have taken joint action in an indus
trial matter. The churches in their
appeal asked the president:
To call a national coal confer

camps has become a national

The statement expresses gratifica

churches in part is as follows:
"To the President of the United j
"Time to Act," !
"We desire to express to you on
behalf of the three great religious
organizations that we represent, our
conviction that the time has arrived

2 Women Die in Flames
at Minnetonka Club
Minneapolis, Minn., June 19. Two
women were burned to death in fires
which destroyed the fashionable La
fayette club at Minnetonka beach,
Lake Minnetonka, near here, early
yesterday. A dozen guests and em
ploye among the 100 persons forced
to flee were injured. The loss to
the building is estimated at $250,000.
The fire started at 2 a. m. in the
spacious ball room. A smouldering
cigaret is believed to have been the
cause. There had been a dance at
the club Saturday night, but the
dancers left at midnight. The club
house was built entirely of wood and
the flames swept through the halls
so that in 15 minutes the whole club

Man Uelieved to
on Fahe Teeth
Chicago. June 19. The body of
a man believed to be James E.
Straud of 506 West 47th street.
New York City, found behind a
west side residence early today,
presented an unusual mystery to
the police. After a preliminary in
vestigation officials were unable to
determine whether the man had
been murdered or had accidentally
strangled to death on his own false
teeth while asleep.
The neck was discolored, in
dicating strangulation, and a
stained hatchet handle nearby led
at first to the theory of murder.

Light Vote Cast
Interest Chiefly in Minor
Offices Woman Demo
cratic A.-pirant for U.
St. Paul. June 19. (By A. P.)
Reports available early tonight on
Minnesota's state-wide primary elec
tion today indicated that a compara
tively light vote had been cast, with
interest in county and legislative
contests overshadowing the state
contests in many counties.
Foremost interest in state-wide
contests centered in the democratic
nomination for United States senator
and the republican congressional
district contest in the Third district,
with 'secondary attention attracted
,by the republican senatorial contest,
in which Senator Frank B. Kellogg
sought renomination. In addition to
senatorial and congressional nomi
nations, party candidates were
chosen for state offices and nomina
tions made for associate justice of
the supreme court, district judges,
legislative and county offices, not
subject to party designation.
Party contests were confined to
the republican and democratic par
ties as the farmer-labor party, which
includes a number of candidates al
lied with the Nonpartisan league, had
no contests. Henrik Shipstead. Min
neapolis, for senator, and Magnus
Johnson, Kimball, for governor,
head the farmer-labor ticket.
The democratic senatorial contest
in which Mrs. Annie Dicke Olesen of
Cloquet was opposed by Thomas J.
Meighen, Preston, and Gomer Morris,
Minneapolis, was one of four in that
party. The others were for the
congressional nomination in the Fifth
district and governor and attorney
general on the state ticket.
The jjplls, which opened at 6 a. m.,
did not close until 9 p. m., and it was
expected that in the case of close
contests, such as was looked for in
the democratic senatorial race, the
outcome might not be known until

The French government, it was
explained, has reached its decision to
participate with the Russians at The
Hague, without waiting for further
developments in the preliminary meet

have received strict instructions to
adhere to the French policy as out
lined at Genoa and to leave the con
ference at once upon the entrance1 Sf
They will stick closely, it is stated,
to the French contention that the so
viet authorities must recognize the
principle of respecting foreign
owned private property and the pay
ment of foreign debts.

said the Pravda. "We can give it oil.' '
of which it has great need, and re--ceive
from it technical equipment for -industry

be done, avoiding the commissioners
of bankrupt Europe bourgeoisie."
Declaring that Russian wells now
produce only 560,000,000 poods
(about 10,000,000 tons) annually, the
